World War One / Why did Joseph forfeit his medals?
« on: Friday 09 November 18 13:38 GMT (UK)  »
I have come across a Joseph Adams (SS/2849) of the army service corps who I think may be the individual I am researching (his death certificate is due any day now). However, on his medal roll index card and on the medal rolls themselves, it states he forfeited his medals due to NW/9/2016 - does anybody know what this means? He was discharged on the 12 July 1915 due to misconduct. Therefore, I imagine NW/9/2016 means some kind of misconduct, but other than that I am stumped!

The Lighter Side / Family Footsteps TV Series
« on: Friday 05 October 18 13:07 BST (UK)  »
Has anyone else watched this?

It's a BBC Northern Ireland TV Series and the first episode can be seen on iPlayer:

It follows a family as they live the lives heir ancestors lived and the grandad researches his family tree.

Episodes are only half an hour and only one has been broadcast yet, but it looks like a good series.


I have this photo and I'd like to identify the people in the photo, but I can only really do that if I know the date of the photo itself. It seems (like many photos) it is on the back of a postcard, but the back seems to be the other way round (upside-down). Both individuals in the photo appear quite young.

I would appreciate any help given.

Armed Forces / Fold3 Free Access 6-9 August
« on: Monday 06 August 18 11:27 BST (UK)  »
Just to let everyone know, Fold3 are having a free weekend starting today (Monday) and expiring on Thursday at 23:59 for Commonwealth military records.

At the same time, as has been mentioned on the WW1 board, Ancestry's WW1 records are free to view. However, as the Fold3 records contain information from a variety of periods of history and the fact that Fold3 is a different website, I feel this deserves a seperate thread.

You will need to sign in to Fold3 to access their records, but this can be done by signing in with your Ancestry details and then creating a free account with this information if you haven't already done so.

The Common Room / "Who Do You Think You Are", Series 15: #2 Olivia Colman
« on: Monday 09 July 18 19:49 BST (UK)  »
Just a heads up as I've only seen 1 advert and that was yesterday!

The new series starts tonight on BBC1 at 9PM with Olivia Colman. It looks like it will be on every week without a gap as well - apart from Michelle Keegan last month!

Edit to modify title after broadcast

Essex / Colchester, St. Peter Marriage 1798
« on: Sunday 01 October 17 15:38 BST (UK)  »
According to a settlement examination record in Bethnal Green in 1840, William Hardy (deceased before examination) married his wife Susannah (don't know her maiden name) on the 22nd April 1798 at Colchester, St. Peter, Essex (certificate produced).

Could someone with access to the records for this church confirm this marriage please?

The Lighter Side / TheGenealogist: Free 1 Month Diamond Subscription
« on: Saturday 02 September 17 18:53 BST (UK)  »
Just noticed that for today only (5 hours left till offer expires) that TheGenealogist are offering a free 1 month diamond subscription. I suppose it's similar to a free trial but double the normal 14 days.

Scroll down a bit and between the date and the article text is a box that says "claim your free sub here".

The Common Room / "Who Do You Think You Are", Series 14: #5 Emma Willis
« on: Saturday 05 August 17 15:40 BST (UK)  »
Did anybody watch this episode? I couldn't see a thread about it!  ;D

I actually quite enjoyed this episode; probably my favourite of the series so far. It was great to see Emma actually doing the research herself, rather than being handed it all. She also seemed genuine with her reactions and seemed to want to know more.

I found the story in Ireland rather interesting and being able to see your ancestors own work must have been an amazing feeling for Emma. 5/5 More like this!

Hi all!

I have a photo that I could do with dating and aging the man in the photo as I'm not sure who he is.

I've attached the front and back of the photo.
It was taken by a Frederick Futcher of 19 Fisherton Street, Salisbury. On further research of him it seems he moved there in 1907.
